Ten Years

I've lived here ten years and just now. Tonight. For the first time, after months (years?) of saying "we should have a cuppa tea" my neighbour and I had a cup o tea.

She called me this morning at 7:30, and said, "Can it be today? Can we finally just get together and talk?"

So after work, and after I met with my realtor (to deal with an offer) (!), I invited her over for a visit. We talked for HOURS. It was so good.


I make a new friend 5 weeks before I have to move. (If my counter-offer is accepted and my house passes inspection.)

Maybe I won't wait so long to meet my neighbours in my next house. Why am I such a putz?

Three things I'm thankful for:

1. Neighbours who travel. And have great travel stories. Now I really want to go to Israel. Her description of who Jesus was, was inspiring.

2. There's an offer on my house. Low ball. But I countered. And we'll see what happens. If this is God's will, then I'll be moving in a few weeks. Aaaaack, I am SO going to miss this house. How many more memories can I cram in before it's all over?

3. Are you married? You should go to this.

"FIGHT RIGHT" ... A fun evening. 
Trust me on this - go. And take your married kids. 

No. I'm serious.

Go online and get tickets. You will not regret it.
